Around 7.30 P.M, we drove to Ciampelas to buy some jeans and t-shirts. After 2 hours shopping there, we dropped at Ciwalk for half an hour to relax and enjoy the beauty of Ciwalk. Our next destination is Ciwidey and Cimangu. It took about one and half hour to be in Ciwidey and Cimangu. Unfortunately, we couldn't visit Ciwidey because of the bad weather and continued to Cimangu, around one kilometer from it. In Ciwidey, we had a warm water bathing. All of us jumped into the warm water and enjoyed  it a lot. Our body soaked in a big warm swimming pool for about an hour before we stopped. At 2 A.M on Saturday, we took a rest in of villager's house there near Ciwidey.
                On Saturday we had a great activity because we did many things. First we went to Ciwidey. We enjoyed the nature of Ciwidey's View. We stayed there for about one hour. Around 10 o'clock, we went to Strawberry Park located in Ciwidey, too. We learnt how to plant the strawberry and of course ate some products made of strawberry, such as fried rice, cake and juice.
              On Saturday afternoon around 2 P.M, we came back to hotel to drop our luggage. After 2 hours in hotel, we went to Cibaduyut for shoes shopping. At around 7 P.M, we went to Dago Street to enjoy Saturday night there.

It was takbiran night. It was also my birthday, and nothing happened. Or I had thought nothing would happen, but I was wrong.
            That night, I was watching television with my family when I heard someone lit fireworks in my front yard. I peeped trough my window glass but could see nothing. It was very dark outside. Then I thought it had to be my cousins who lit the fireworks. Then I plopped down on my sofa again and tried to concentrate on the television since my mind raced with disappointment that no one gave something special on my birthday. I shrugged, it was almost the end of the day and I became pessimist.
Five minutes later my mobile beeped. It was a text from my friend asking me to come out. Wondering what was going on, I grabbed my jacket and hurried to the front door. I was surprised to see her bring a bag full of firework and fire drills. Next I was surprised to see my other friend come out from the darkness. She brought a beautiful birthday cake on her hands. Oh my God! I shrieked. Then they gave the cake to me who was too stunned to say anything. I realized I was blushing furiously because my whole family was watching. Not to mention my neighbors too!
